Resources: Survey of Digital Collections

Unfortunately due to a lingering  illness that I can’t seem to shake, I will be unable to attend THATCamp this weekend. I was very much looking forward to interacting and learning from all the other campers.

In lieu of not being able to attend, I wanted to contribute to the conversation in some small way,  so I am going to share a resource that some colleagues and I created which provides a survey of some of the digital collections found in the Pacific Northwest.  This guide contains links to digital collections as well as guidelines, standards and other resources.
It is available via this link:

Two other items of interest are posters which were recently presented at the 2009 Pacific Northwest Library Association (PNLA) conference in Missoula.

I hope everyone has a great camp.  Travel safe.  Stay well. Learn a-lot!
